So what you are saying, had anyone republican president taken unilateral action without the approval of congress, you would have been ok with it, and not screaming that it was unconstitutional?

A booming economy is usually bad for unskilled workers.

Republicans killed this by demanding approval without a proper review. Republicans in affected states were also opposing this, because they didn't want to risk their economic lifeline (agriculture) if they didn't have to. The pipeline can still be built, of course, once some issues are addressed. Of course, thanks to Republican's attempt to score political points, it will now take longer or simply not be built at all.

More flat out lying. http://www.taxpolicycenter.org/taxfa...al_bracket.pdf The actual tax burden went down thanks to all the tax cuts and credits in the recovery act.

Perhaps you could try coming up with something that is supported by facts.

you don't grow the economy by transferring american wealth to other countries with undeclared wars.

you don't grow the economy by thousands of pages of new government regulations.

you don't grow the economy by keeping housing prices artificially inflated.

you don't grow the economy by encouraging illegal immigrants to enter this country, and promising them free education and healthcare at the expense of working americans and their children.

you don't grow the economy by degrading the currency, and forcing inflation on already struggling americans.

you don't grow the economy by signing legislation that restricts american freedom.
You had all your guns firing, but you need to work on some of your hand-eye coordination and learn how to aim before you start pulling the trigger.

Barack Obama has no control over the prices of gas. That's all the oil speculators on Wall Street. Domestic production has quadrupled under Obama, and I didn't see any of the GOP holding Bush accountable when the prices of gas were sky high under his watch.

They shut down that pipeline because they wanted to build it over the Ogalalla Aquifer and endanger the largest source of groundwater on the entire continent. Good call on Obama for not letting them contaminate it.

We aren't transferring wealth to other countries per se, but there is such a thing as foreign aid. That's what the Peace Corps is all about. If you want to gripe about this, then maybe you should hold the GOP accountable for encouraging jobs to outsource overseas. That all started under Reagan. For the record, Obama has insourced over 100,000 jobs since he took office.

Businesses DO need regulations. If they had it their way, there'd be no minimum wage, no child labor laws, and slavery would be legal. They'd have sweatshops in every major cities. That's another reason why they need to outlaw all the outsourcing and slap companies with hefty fines.

Most of those "illegal" aliens are coming over here to do the jobs nobody else wants. Let's see you go out there and pick produce, dig ditches, pave roads, clean windows, dump garbage, and other backbreaking labor intensive jobs for less than minimum wage. It's all a catch-22.

You're right about the last two. Inflation got out of control under GW Bush, and the current GOP Congress hasn't gotten control of it. Also, you're exactly right about legislation that restricts freedom. That's why the GOP needs to leave Roe vs. Wade and gay marriages alone. They also need to overturn the Patriot Act that Bush signed.
